  3. Ha! Good question!! I am Canadian and we say #1 but my American sister-in -law insists that it is #2 as #1 is what you keep under the bed!!

  4. Where I'm from we say it the first way and I always used to say that until I moved to Texas and everyone laughed at me for saying it that way. So now I've just gotten used to saying it the second way. This is a hot topic of debate for sure!

    1. I know. I leave them out of most of my Christmas cooking because of the expense. Plus, Justin doesn't like nuts in anything!!

  8. On the gulf coast of Mississippi, I learned to say "pi-khans". Love them. Have them on a salad literally 5 days a week. Also, my childhood home was in Pecan Park (a neighborhood that used to be part of a pecan orchard). Another interesting point--after 1969, when Hurricane Camille wiped out my town, the trees in that same pecan orchard never dropped pecans again. Sad.
